    Here's what you do. Invite a bunch of local construction companies to dump all their crap on a lot. Then invite them back when these guys show up. It would be worth $100 to watch 5 guys go at it for 4 hours.

    Man, after paying taxes on that, they are only making like 9.00 per hour.

    Oh yeah...I almost forgot, not everyone has to pay taxes....

    Turn them in to your local tax office

    I'm not defending this lco by any means.. but maybe this is there strategy:

    If they're talking man hours.. thats $22.50/manhour for the first hour Send 8 guys over and It will take them one hour to do the job. That's $180/hr, minus $80/hr for labor ($10/hr).

    Granted in the end they are only making $100/hr with 8 guys.. yes, that is bad, but maybe they think it's good?
